International students need to have health insurance during their stay in the United States. UC offers a group health plan, which is charged directly to their accounts. This plan provides coverage for doctor visits when students are ill or injured along with emergency care.
If students choose another provider, they must bring proof of the other insurance plan, and it must meet the requirements specified on the Health Insurance Waiver form. Students who have specific questions about health insurance or who need to replace a lost health insurance card can get assistance by calling the Student Solutions Center at 304-357-4754.
NOTE: Health insurance cards should be carried at all times.
